The time has finally come, fall is officially rearing its gorgeous and colourful head and I for one am very excited to put my sundresses away and trade them in for some cute autumn looks. Many people would agree that fall is the most picturesque of all the seasons and Mont Megantic National Park is by far one of the most photogenic spots of them all.

This park is located a little under three hours from Montreal and reaches its peak of beauty throughout the fall.

The 20 km hike will lead you to a phenomenal view that will leave you with chills running up and down your spine.

You can even bring your four-legged bestie along for the journey, as this park permits you to bring your dog!

And, best of all is that you do not need to be a hiking expert to experience the grandeur of this view. However, you will want to wear appropriate shoes as it is still a hike! 

From the top, you'll be able to take it some breathtaking views while being surrounded by over "120 different types of birds."

 

This spot is not only for those who love basking in the fall colours but also for those who are looking for a spot to gaze at the stars. 

the stars will seem so close you will be under the impression that you could reach up and pluck them from the sky. 

And, for those of you who want to spend the night looking up at the sky, you can stay at the campsite or rent a cabin in the area. 

This will make for a phenomenal weekend in the woods that is sure to leave you feeling rejuvenated and refreshed.

Although Mont Megantic National Park exudes a ton of beauty all throughout the year, I believe it's truly at its peak during autumn.

That's why I highly suggest you check it out before the first snowfall!
